Guide Description

A glimpse into Maya life.

El Rey is a little known Maya archeological site nestled in the main hotel zone of Cancun. For travelers that want to experience the ancient Maya civilization but don’t have the time for a trip to Chichen Itza or Tulum, El Rey might be for you. El Rey was once a city center and a village for trading goods between Maya cities like Akumal and Tulum. Today it is a beautiful garden where you can climb to the top of a pyramid and share your view with one of many iguanas that roam the site. Download and listen to the TekTrek audio guide of El Rey to experience the sounds and stories of the ancient Maya way of life.

El Rey, located in the middle of the hotel zone, is a short public bus or taxi ride from any Cancun hotel.
